Check Out End


Usually EFY is contained within the campus where it is being held. Youth may face disciplinary action for leaving campus. Participants should only leave campus after following established check out policy and procedure.

The safety of our participants is our highest priority.

When checking a participant out from an EFY session, either temporarily or permanently, the following documents need to be presented to the staff who is on duty at the site office.

For a Parent/legal guardian:

  • Driver’s License

For a Relative/Friend (must be 18+ years old and authorized by the parent/legal guardian):

  • Driver’s License
  • Written consent from legal guardian
  • Photo copy of parent/legal guardian’s driver’s license (used to verify authenticity)

EFY will always call the parent/legal guardian listed in the primary or secondary emergency contact information to confirm the request. If the contact information provided is incorrect or the parent/legal guardian is not available by phone, the participant will not be checked out. Any exceptions must go through the main EFY Office (801-422-4493).

Participants must also check back in at the site office.

Early Arrival InfoNo early arrivals.
Linens and TowelsPlease bring all bedding, linens, toiletries. SHEETS REQUIRED TO BE USED

Additional Packing Instructions

Follow this link for the EFY packing list and additional information to help youth prepare for EFY.

Mailing/Delivery of Letters or Packages

We recommend that letters or packages NOT be sent to participants. If necessary medications or items are forgotten, please contact the session site office and make arrangements with the staff. For birthdays or a special occasion, consider putting a note or surprise in your youth’s suitcase instead of arranging a delivery. Delivering personal mail and non-essential/non-emergency items disrupts the EFY schedule and uses the valuable time and resources of our staff. We sincerely appreciate your cooperation in this matter.
